On the wings of Freedom

    Newer Older

    Whoever asks himself about my strange nickname - here is the answer:

    “Harpagornis was a massive, now extinct eagle that once lived on the South Island of New Zealand. It was the largest eagle to have ever lived.”

    Early human settlers put an bloody end to his freedom and they vanished from the sky forever. My nickname is a small reminiscence to this majestic creature so that they may spread their wings once again to fly up into the endless sky - even if it’s only in my dreams.

      Die Statue selbst ist grandios, aber dein Bild mit der starken Komposition und der feiner Bearbeitung setzt sie erst so richtig in Szene. Und eine interessante Geschichte dazu - großartig.
